    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy".

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    "You don't have free will. You have the appearance of free will.”

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Hows the Kelpie?

    I'm loving the Corry; it's nicer than the Uggy and I absolutely loved that!

    The Kelpie will be my next treat I think...

    For every invoice I submit to a client, I'm treating myself to a new bottle (within reason); but the Kelpie will be a treat, something to spend my birthday £££ on from back in August

    One bottle I still have is an Edradour Chateauneuf du Cape cask; bought it on our honeymoon back in Dec 2010 and you cant buy it any more; I bought 2 of each of the 4 cask bottles back then; hopefully they'll grow in value

    Ha, Kevin - wot are you like! Why on earth have so many? Are you running a bar?

    I hope they've not all been opened and left lying for ages, as you do realise that once opened, the whisky will gradually lose its flavour and intensity?

    Why on earth not? I like whisky, so fancied a few bottles.

    The are all opened, and stored in the dark in a temperature controlled environment.
    Whisky is for drinking, not looking at.
